75 Years of Experience

Did you know that Tulsa Welding School (TWS) is celebrating its 75th anniversary? Tulsa Welding School was founded in 1949 to meet the high demand for skilled tradespeople. We have helped thousands of students enter the trade industry as welders, HVAC technicians, electricians, and electrical lineworkers. At TWS, we care about our students. We act with integrity, communicate in a two-way conversation, take accountability for your academic success, and enjoy our students’ respect and trust in us to offer a great educational experience.

Over the last 75 years, we have opened three new campuses. In 1949, we started educating students at our Tulsa, OK campus, and in 2001, we started expanding in Florida and then Texas shortly after. We now have four campuses in Tulsa, OK, Houston and the Dallas Metro, TX, and Jacksonville, FL. This allows us to help additional students capture their dream jobs and do something they are passionate about. When you love what you do, you don’t work a day in your life.
